  • Their spirits are very smooth, craft distillery is a good idea. That said, food was extremely good, poblano potato hash was the winner against their burger and pastries. I wanted to try the pork ribs, but they were not on the brunch menu. Next time. Eager to come in for their Thai dishes.
  • The drinks are great, but I have had two visits in a row that have resulted in poor, slow service. During the first trip two weeks ago it took roughly 40 minutes to receive our drinks. The second visit resulted in a similar situation. Upon being seated, it took approximately 15 minutes to be acknowledged. Once a waiter came, we received our drinks very quickly. Then our waitress disappeared for an extremely long time (at least 45 minutes...) and we had to stop another worker to place our second drink order. Again, I love the drinks here but the service is putting me off from coming back for a little while.
